Henry Onyekuru's cup heroics with Galatasaray will not benefit his appeal for a British work permit at Everton.

Missing out on Nigeria's World Cup squad through injury last season was a big blow to Onyekuru's chances of gaining a work permit for this campaign.

Nigeria's current FIFA ranking of 37th means the 21-year-old would have to appear in 75% of their matches across two years to receive an automatic work permit.



Albeit glory in Turkey has no baring on his quest for a work permit, there is a boost for both the Nigerian forward and Everton in this summer's African Cup of Nations.

Onyekuru helped the Turkish giants lift the Turkish Cup on Wednesday as Fatih Terim’s men came from behind to defeat Akhisar Belediyespor 3-1 with goals from Sinan Gumus, Sofiane Feghouli and Mbaye Diagne.

The three-time African champions are in Group B along with Burundi, Guinea and Madagascar and appearances for his national side can support his chances of playing in the Premier League next term.

He was subsequently shipped out to Galatasaray for a fee of £1m.
